Taylor pleased to secure Menayese permanently

5 January 2022

Walsall Head Coach Matt Taylor feels there is more to come from defender Rollin Menayese and is delighted to have secured his services on a permanent basis.

The 24-year-old has impressed at the Banks’s Stadium since arriving, initially on loan, from Mansfield Town in the summer.

Taylor expects the defender to continue to improve and have a real impact on the team moving forward and is happy to have got the deal concluded.

“I’m pleased,” he said.

“Rollin took the opportunity that was given to him to come and play here.

“He knew when he came in that competition would be tough.

“Rollin is most definitely a player, having played with him and seeing where he is now and how he’s improved, somebody who’s a welcome addition to the football club in terms of him becoming our player.

“He fits lots of aspects in terms of his character, personality, his position within the dressing room and he’s a player that I feel will get better.

“He’s a player that wants to learn, he’s a player that enjoys the environment, gets on well with his teammates but the most important thing is that Rollin has been very consistent when he’s played for us and it’s something I feel for the position that he plays in is really important so I’m pleased we’ve managed to secure his services permanently for the football club, I know it wasn’t an easy deal to conclude so now it’s over to Rollin to continue producing performances and continue growing as a player.

“He understands how valued he is, as do all of our players and I feel there is far much more to come from him.

“He’s a player that we see as a member of the squad that can help us get to where we want to get to so from my point of view, I’m extremely happy that we’ve been able to secure his signature for a longer period of time because I know he’s happy here and I know when players are happy, valued and enjoy the environment, you tend to see them performing well.

“I would say the challenge now for Rollin will be now is to not rest on his laurels, to continue getting better and help the football club.”
